Just to say, following my posting of the AMNIOCENTESIS subject on Monday, I am overwhelmed by the reponse from all of you so far. Thank you all - Fimbo, Blu, Tamum, Jabberwocky, SofiaAmes, FifiLala, Peachyclair, and especially those who have sent additional messages (ie not just one!) - Geekgrrl, Black duck, Gallileo and of course Thomcat. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I have read each and every one more than once. It is so comforting and reassuring at times like this (crazy how you feel initially so isolated?) - to know that so many others understand, have had the experience and can give assistance and thoughts/feelings too. It really helps. Thanks. xx.
